There is more to being a photographer than just possessing the technology. Nearly everyone has a cell phone in their pocket and can snap a picture any time they want. But what turns a picture into a photograph? A good photograph exhibits composition, lighting, and technical accuracy.

How can you tell if you have a “snapshot” or a “photograph” that is worthy of your magazine? Here are a few questions to ask as you look at the image:

  • Does it convey a feeling?
  • Does it tell a story?
  • Does it evoke powerful emotions?

A photograph is not based on the equipment being used, but the subject matter and the story it tells.
